Blackwing Descent: Omnomnomitron

Basic Concepts:

  • Council boss
  • Don’t stand in bad things
  • Stand in good things
  • Don’t confuse the two above things

Tanks
Two of the four golems will be active at any given time.  The active golems can be stacked for making the most of splash/cleave/AoE damage.  They do not cleave themselves, thank the Light.   A stream from the back wall to the golems will show you which ones are about to activate.

Arcanotron:
Pull him out of the “cyan-magenta*” whirlpool, but not so far away that your melee can’t stand in it.  You wouldn’t want to make their epeens smaller.
Arcane Annihilator: your healers will thank you for interrupting this.
Power Conversion: IS NOT FOR HITTINGS.

Electron:
If you get Lightning Conductor, laugh at all the melee DPS who are not paying enough attention to run away from you.
For electrical discharge, you…do nothing again.  You’re the tank, it’s the DPS’s job to suck it up and deal.  You probably like this robot a lot, don’t you.
Unstable Shield: IS NOT FOR HITTINGS.

Magmatron:
Incineration Security Measure – MANY FIRES, HANDLE THEM.  Tanks, stay put.  No really.  Don’t move the boss for this.  This will move the fires, and make everyone sad.
Aquiring Target – A red beam will point out the target of incoming flaming buttfuckery.  You do not want to be near this target–and yes, it can be one of you, tanks!
Barrier – IS NOT FOR HITTINGS.

Toxitron:
Poison Cloud – This is the reverse of the whirlpools.  You and your melee buddies want to GTFO, but standing the boss in it = win.
Poison Protocol – Summons friends for your ranged DPS to play with.  They are not tauntable.
Poison Soaked Shell – IS NOT FOR–wait.  When you hit Toxitron with shell up, it does put a stacking dot on you.  Buuuuut when you attack with said dot, you deal nature damage.   Oh wait, you’re a tank.  Just make your healers happy and don’t hit it (unless your DPS are really pressing their luck and threat becomes an issue).

Heals
Arcanotron:
His whirlpool boosts mana regen. Omnomnom.
Power Conversion: IS NOT FOR HITTINGS.  Want to know why I’m telling the healers this?  Look at your pallys.  Yes you, judging pallys.  You.  NOT FOR HITTINGS.

Electron:
You’ll want to spread out for this golem because of electrical discharge.
Lightning Conductor: yell at anyone who has this and stands around near other people stroking their epeen.  If you get it, run the fuck away.
Unstable Shield: IS NOT FOR HITTINGS.

Magmatron:
Incineration Security Measure – Many fires, not for standing in. 
Aquiring Target – A red beam will point out the target of incoming flaming buttfuckery.  You do not want to be near this target.  You do, however, want to heal this target.  A lot.
Barrier – IS NOT FOR HITTINGS.

Toxitron:
Poison Cloud – Not for standing in.  Yell at anyone who does.
Poison Protocol – If they target you, run the fuck away.
Poison Soaked Shell – Just don’t, pallys.  Just don’t.

DPS
When another golem is activated, the previous one will aquire a shield.  Hint: swap targets.

Arcanotron:
The tank will pull him out of his whirlpool thingy, but you should go stand in it.  It has cookies.
Arcane Annihilator: your healers will thank you for interrupting this. 
Power Conversion: When he has this, you don’t want to hit him.  No, really, you don’t.  Mages can steal this buff.

Electron:
You’ll want to spread out for this golem because of electrical discharge.  Unless, of course, you’re standing in Arc’s whirlpool.  OMNOM MORE DPS.
If you get Lightning Conductor, run away from everyone else.  They do not want your staticy hugs.  If the tank gets it, also run away!
Unstable Shield: IS NOT FOR HITTINGS.

Magmatron:
Incineration Security Measure – Fires are not for standing in.  They are not whirlpools, they do not do kind things for your meter standings.
Aquiring Target – A red beam will point out the target of incoming flaming buttfuckery.  You do not want to be near this target.  If it is you, well, I hope you bribe your healers well.  Use damage reducing cooldowns, etc.
Barrier – IS NOT FOR HITTINGS.

Toxitron:
Poison Cloud – The tank will try to stand the boss in this.  You should try not to stand in it yourself.  If this means scooting around to the sides, I really suggest you do that.
Poison Protocol – Summons slime friends for your ranged DPS to play with.  They are not tauntable, but they are slowable.  If they target you, kite them.  If any target the tank, those slimes are your first priority.  Dear melee: do not play with slimes.  Not your own slime, not anyone elses slimes.  We thought that attacking another’s slimes might be fine, but this resulted in me and our DPS warrior eating the floor a lot when they exploded into puddles of death. 
Poison Soaked Shell – IS NOT FOR–wait.  When you hit Toxitron with shell up, it does put a stacking dot on you.  Buuuuut when you attack with said dot, you deal nature damage.   Until you know how much “spare” mana your healers will have, however, you probably don’t want to risk their ire fucking around with this mechanic.  I’ve yet to be able to experiment with this myself becuase my healers cleanse ALL the things. 

*Cyan-magenta, wowwikki?  Really?  WTF.

    I feel like if you mistake good for bad, or bad for good… you are truly doomed in any thing that you probably do in your life. :p But that’s why there’s WoW— to make you feel good about yourself regardless!

    Apart from that, I agree wholeheartedly :)
